Outline – Topic 2: Properties of Systems ECSE-2410 Signals & Systems Spring 2007 Topic 2. Properties of Systems Only three of the properties discussed in the text (Section 1.6) are of interest at this time. Stability will be covered when needed in feedback systems. Causality. Read Section 1.6.3 Understand the basic concept. Time Invariance. Read 1.6.5 Study the definition. You need to understand how to use this definition to determine if a system is time-invariant. Linearity. Read 1.6.6 As above, study the definition. Study the text examples and glean the basic approach. You need to know how to apply the definition to determine if a system is linear. Most of our systems (filters, transfer functions, ...) will be linear, but every now and then we run into a special nonlinear case, such as multiplication of variables, as appears in amplitude

Unformatted text preview: modulation. Superposition is the central idea behind this topic and much of our work: we will decompose complicated input signals into a sum of simpler ones for which the system response is easier to find and then add the resulting simpler responses to get the resulting complicated response. Understand this concept well. Except for modulation, we will assume that our systems are LTI (linear, time-invariant) so that superposition applies, even to shifted signals (due to time-invariance). Master the concepts in videos 2.2 and 2.3. Video 2.4 shows that LTI systems do not preserve time-scaling. Consequently, time-scaling the input signal (speed up or slow down) does not necessarily mean that the LTI system output will be similarly time-scaled....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
